A Dance between Form and Formlessness
Watsu® (Water Shiatsu) began at Harbin Hot Springs when Harold Dull started floating people in the warm pool while applying the stretches and principles of Zen Shiatsu. The receiver is supported on the surface of the water throughout the session as various innovative massage and yoga-like stretching techniques are combined into a seamless whole-body dance. Watsu® can now be found at spas and resorts worldwide. READ MORE >>>
Watsu and WATA increases range of motion, elongates the spine, stretches muscles, and relieves tension and stress. The warmth and hydrostatic pressure of the water promotes healthy circulation and calms the nervous system. It is wonderful for relieving the aches and pains of pregnancy while giving expectant moms to be an opportunity to connect with their developing child. Aquatic offerings are deeply relaxing and nurturing for everybody.
